Default system freezes

Hello,

I'm running FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE with a CORE 2 DUO cpu (2,66Ghz) and 2GB of RAM (in dual channel). The motherboard is an ASUS P5Q SE with the latest BIOS. I'm using the last nvidia drivers too (nvidia-driver-180.29) with Xorg 7.4.

As said in the title, I have serious instability issues: X starts without any problems, but after some times (~1 hour) either:

- the display displays black for one second (flickering) and then come back, it do this only one time. Generally when I look at the kernel logs I have this output :
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0001
This happens generally less than 10 times in an evening. It's generally not "fatal" (=I don't have to reboot), but sometimes it is (with image corruption). One important thing is that this problem occurs also under Windows Vista (except that I don't have to reboot)

- the display start to flicker very quickly (with image corruption) and I have to reboot the system. The kernel outputs things like :
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 00005097 000015e0 00000000 00000040
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 0000502d 000008dc 00000000 00000100
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 00005097 000015e0 00000000 00000040
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 00005097 000015e0 00000000 00000040
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 0000502d 000008dc 00000000 00000100
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 00005097 000015e0 00000000 00000040
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0001 00000000 0000502d 000008dc 00000000 00000100

I really think it's a bug in the drivers as the problem doesn't appear if I use the "Driver nv" in Xorg.conf.

The problem occurs less if I put my RAM in single channel mode, and *seems* to dissapear if I only put 1GB of RAM in my system.

I've pasted the Xorg.log logs on http://dpaste.com/hold/4267/ and a dmidecode output on http://dpaste.com/hold/4269/
I can provide more informations if you need it.

Best regards, and sorry for my english,
Julien
